Zenith Bank Can’t Deny Funding My Election – Fayose


Ekiti State Governor, Mr Ayodele Fayose, has challenged the management of  Zenith Bank Plc to officially deny that the bank funded  his election in 2014.

Fayose  was reacting to a media reports saying the bank has denied  the funding his election.

Speaking through his Chief Press Secretary, Idowu Adelusi, on Thursday, the governor said: “I stand by  my claim that Zenith Bank Plc majorly funded my election in June 2014.

“I don’t expect an organisation like Zenith Bank to stay in a corner in matter of national concern like this and be talking.

“Rather, I expect the Zenith Bank to issue an official statement not as feeble as this one being peddled in the media, so that I can begin the second stage of my revelations.

“My statement was made in the open and if I can accuse an institution like Zenith Bank in the open, I expect the institution to give an  official reply and not one online medium claiming sources in the bank.

“All what have been claimed to have been said by the Zenith Bank in the media can be situated in the realm of rumour because an organisation like Zenith Bank won’t react to issues through sources,” he said.‎ Making allusions to the Bible, the governor referred  the All Progressives Congress (  APC),  Zenith Bank and the EFCC to John 8 verses 6-7, which says; “This they said, tempting him, that they might have to accuse him. But Jesus stooped down and with his finger wrote on theground, as though he heard them not. When they continued asking him, he lifted up himself and said unto them, he that is without sin among you, let him cast the first stone‎.”

He warned that  those behind his current travails will fail.
